Showing posts with the label envy

be grateful that God is kind (Elder Holland)

“There are going to be times in our lives when someone else gets an unexpected blessing or receives some special recognition. May I plead with us not to be hurt—and certainly not to feel envious—when good fortune comes to another person? We are not diminished when someone else is added upon. We are not in a race against each other to see who is the wealthiest or the most talented or the most beautiful or even the most blessed. The race we are  really  in is the race against sin, and surely envy is one of the most universal of those. … So be kind, and be grateful that God is kind. It is a happy way to live.” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland -“The Laborers in the Vineyard,”  Ensign ,  May 2012, 31–32
